BLACK MOON LILITH – debut single out

BLACK MOON LILITH – debut single out

Though metal band Black Moon Lilith members range in age from 15 to 19, their skills, creativity and passion are ageless. From Ventura County, in the 805 of Southern California, Thomas Hemmens (guitar), Nathan Hokom (bass), Jason Maser (drums) and Emrys Mellinger (vocals/guitar) produce high-level, distinctive, complex, jazz-flourished metal characterized by prominent and multifarious bass, inventive and intricate drum beats, aggressive and dynamic vocals, and heavy guitar riffs with a lyrical and emotive styling.   

The band has released their debut single, “MORIBUND” which can be watched below


Hokom and Maser met in high school marching band, connecting over a shared bond of music. Maser and Hemmens studied at the same music school and had similar music preferences. The three came together to form Black Moon Lilith in February of 2021. Mellinger, attending the same music school, joined the lineup a year later.  

Black Moon Lilith crafts a unique sound—progressive extreme metal showcasing a mosaic of influences including traditional metal, black/death metal, metalcore and deathcore. 

The band has been hard at work writing an album’s worth of material, all while cutting their teeth playing shows in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties.  Moribund, their debut single, was released March 3, 2023, and is available on all streaming platforms.
